Jackie Chan Martial Arts Mayhem
"an aural and visual assault"-- description from box.

"Aural and visual assault" is right. Great fight scenes, though.
The strobe effect in the beginning does not last very long, which is good- it's guaranteed to trigger and epileptic attack or migraine, the latter even more so when paired with one-dimensional angry techno music. Amazing fight scenes, of course- it's Jackie Chan! Also, the first scenes are from "Dragons Forever", so we also get to see Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao do their stuff, too. I've seen this done much better and without the crappy music. Five stars for Jackie Chan and friends, one star for this presentation.

mashup before the term mashup?
I guess this is more of a greatest hits reel (ok, that was a pun), but it also seems to be a kind of mashup but from the vhs era.

a "best of" set to music
sometimes the strobing "special effect" lighting is distracting, and at 2 hrs it's best taken in small doses. but it's a lot of fun to watch and at times the music is uncannily in sync w/the action, highlighting the rythym of the fight choreography.
